Subject: Episode information
I was surprised to see that only the first half of the show was sponsored (by Lever Brothers, as noted in previous reviews). After a station break midway through the show, the advertising material that had been on the contestants' desk was gone. Breaks in the second half of the show are for an upcoming NBC program.

Subject: Better prizes than the current TPIR!
This episode is just another example of 50s game shows and some of the most amazing (and expensive) prizes ever offered! The original TPIR with Bill Cullen featured contestants winning not just cars, trips, & appliances...but outlandish prizes such as a model home, a 1926 Rolls Royce, a ferris wheel, and more.

Bill Cullen had a long and lucrative career on game shows, not only was he the host of "The Price is Right", he also was a regular panelist on "I've Got a Secret" at the same time, he went on to host and/or be a panelist on many other game shows throughout his long career.
I also agree with the previous poster, there is quite a resemblance between him and Drew Carey!

Great to see the wonderful Bill Cullen. And even better, the sponsor's commercials, especially since Lever Bros recently left the detergent business and sold their products like Wisk.

This is totally different than today's TPIR! No college kids wearing "I Love Bob Barker" T-shirts! I thought the prices would have been a lot lower back then. Was that a car or a golf cart???

Subject: Not Bad
This is not as bad as The Betty Hutton Show.

Still, it's quite good.

I love all the prizes, they are much better than a delicious ham sandwich.

Subject: Drew Cullen...
This was great! Thanks for uploading it. I've always been a fan of Bill Cullen, but it took me by surprise how much he looked like a thin Drew Carey, the present day host of THE PRICE IS RIGHT.
